Justin Krasuckas

I am youngest generation Lithuanian artist working in portraiture, figurative and landscape genres. My main inspiration to art comes from wild, mysterious, melancholic nature same with people, cinema and music. I am using realistic approach learned from old masters to create my stories. Mostly my art are based in two mediums - oil painting and etching. Now almost decade I am painting portrait, figure commissions / participating in exhibitions, competitions and going to annual pleinairs. In recent time I am teaching classical portrait drawing and painting course. Most of my art are for sale, some are bought by collectors.
